Eating a "heart healthy" diet meant to lower blood pressure, and maintaining or increasing participation in moderate physical activity, may help preserve our memory and thinking abilities as we age, according to new research reported today at the Alzheimer's Association 2009 International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease (ICAD 2009) in Vienna. 

"We can't do anything about aging or family history, but research continues to show us that there are lifestyle decisions we all can make to keep our brains healthier, and that also may lower our risk of memory decline as we age," said William Thies, PhD, Chief Medical & Scientific Officer at the Alzheimer's Association. 

The studies reported at ICAD 2009 were:

  • Heidi Wengreen, et al - DASH diet adherence scores and cognitive decline and dementia among aging men and women: Cache County study of  Memory Health and Aging.

  • Deborah Barnes, et al - The impact of changes in physical activity levels on rate of cognitive decline in a biracial cohort of  non-demented elders.

  • Mary Tierney, et al - Intensity of long-term physical activity and later life cognition in postmenopausal women.

  • Thomas Obisesan, et al - Aerobic-related physical activity interacting with apolipoprotein E genotypes, is associated with better cognitive function in a nationally representative sample: The Third  National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III).

The 2009 Alzheimer's Association International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease (ICAD 2009) brings together more than 3,000 researchers from 70 countries to share groundbreaking research and information on the cause, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. 

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. The mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. The vision is a world without Alzheimer's.
